What we have here is Metallica's original fused up with a electronic foundation. The remix stays very true to the original, just escalating it to an epic level. The original is a hard track and Lavelle & File keeps the hardness in the drive of the track.
Personally i'm not a big fan of breakdowns unless their special in some way, otherwise i just want the track to drop and get on with it, but for the track just drops after an intense moment into the guitar & bass and just builds up tension with use of the percussion & vocal snippets to release it in a magnificant way and just lets the track sail out to a clear path.
When i bought the track i didn't what to expect since i wasn't a big fan of their big profiled remix the "Queens of the Stone Age" track but Lavelle & File did good and i still like to pop this one on and enjoy the ride.
